The next morning it was cloudy and a cold drizzle fell all over the place.copyright protection3PENANAKAz0f6WRma

“Did you hear what happened?” a student said.copyright protection3PENANAuKITlUvoja

“What, what happened?”copyright protection3PENANA1Xld7ub4qx

“A boy was found dead at school.”copyright protection3PENANAZb7zbnG7f2

“A dead body?”copyright protection3PENANAhJM0C8U8we

“And who was it?” said another student who approached the place.copyright protection3PENANAiybEMi8Xnz

“You are mistaken, there is no dead," said a girl.copyright protection3PENANAvnKDWV0C3f

“A boy is in the hospital but not dead, it's Justin, you know the Hufflepuff son of Muggles.”copyright protection3PENANAFlZrlCAgK7

“I also heard that almost decapitated Nick was also attacked and is in the infirmary.”copyright protection3PENANAu3GGIsZQqn

“That's weird, but we all know who the culprit is, that Neville.”copyright protection3PENANApVKayG6zj9

“It's true, just look at those eyes, he's evil.”copyright protection3PENANAPYvOqQq07b

“PROFESSOR, PROFESSOR MCGONAGALL!” Filch shouted, interrupting the conversation of the other students.copyright protection3PENANA7BfOiXghNG

“But what happens Argus!” the woman shouted.copyright protection3PENANAEdCpob6uKp

“Next to... next to the tower of astronomy... I found... I found...”copyright protection3PENANAEAo9pPZQP6

“Calm down Argus and tell me what you found.”copyright protection3PENANA1XIhM1e2j2

“I found a... One of the shattered battlements on the floor, damn brats, now they're doing acts of vandalism!”copyright protection3PENANAJXflnDwt8h

Neville was in Dumbledore's office, the director sent for him because of the latest attacks. The boy waited for the director to show up, and he remembered the night before... He was going to jump, but in the end the vertigo and fear could do more and Neville fell backwards, but the battlement where he was before fell into the void.copyright protection3PENANAGs3WNqAkTI

“Am I really Slyterin's heir?”copyright protection3PENANABNut4qKblR

“What if I have a double personality?”copyright protection3PENANA8o039qKV4t

“You would have looked good in Slyterin," said a voice in front of the boy, making him jump from his seat. The sorting hat had spoken to him.copyright protection3PENANA0LW4HKuh4o

“What?”copyright protection3PENANA0Gbv9gVUsh

“You would have looked good in Slyterin.”copyright protection3PENANAMBGMEPdpLi

“But... But you told me it would have looked good in Hufflepuff...”copyright protection3PENANATM3PQLAl3E

“You would have looked good in Hufflepuff, but you would also have looked good in Slyterin, you child did not let me finish, you interrupted me asking me to send you to Gryffindor...”copyright protection3PENANAJ3lVzvcvpE

Neville stayed as a stone and then to calm his mind he went to where the mascot of Dumbledore, this was a very old and ugly bird, at that moment, she herself was consumed in a fire coming out of her entrails.copyright protection3PENANANbgtYUibk3

“Hey, I didn't do it! Why is bad luck on me! It's best to die!”copyright protection3PENANAudQx3GjD1m

In that Dumbledore arrived and reassured the boy who was in shock.copyright protection3PENANAiLqDH08Tvy

The director explained to him about the nature of the phoenix and asked him some questions about yesterday, if he met Dobby again. Neville denied this and couldn't give the principal any information. Neville was so depressed that he didn't pay attention to the strange voices that seemed to come out behind the castle walls the night of the attack on Justin and the ghost.copyright protection3PENANAyiJOLIJ4U4

After a couple of days, a rumor was running through the halls of the school, apparently Hermione had been attacked and her face had been disfigured, to Neville the world came over and wanted to enter the infirmary, but Mrs. Pomfrey prohibited everyone from entering.copyright protection3PENANAABRkqC2aHW

One very late night Neville snuck into his common room (actually always did this) and stole Harry's cloak of invisibility.copyright protection3PENANAePkvOgQswP

“If Harry finds out, he kills you," Neville said to himself, but the fact that he wanted to know how her friend was, makes his fear go away from him. “It's been several days, I have to see her," Neville encouraged himself.copyright protection3PENANA985BbZKe1N

Neville entered the infirmary carefully and whispered to Hermione.copyright protection3PENANANBpEWPhZZY

“Who is there?”copyright protection3PENANAWdOgJCxA54

“Hermione is me...”copyright protection3PENANApecvQouADv

“You're not Ron or Harry, I don't recognize your voice.” Again the sphere in Neville's chest cracked.copyright protection3PENANAor7N54Dn3C

Neville didn't dare take off his invisible cloak.copyright protection3PENANAmZQagAMObS

“Hermione, it's me. Neville Longbottom.”copyright protection3PENANASA755XuAx7

“Neville...”copyright protection3PENANA6WyeJEin1l

“Yes, I stole Harry's invisible cloak.... Don't go telling him please.”copyright protection3PENANA0nlQyBrlqC

“Of course Neville, don't worry.”copyright protection3PENANAdidkoihSTP

“Are you all right? You can draw the curtain for me to see you.”copyright protection3PENANA0ZMydwdvTf

“No, I don't think so, I look horrible.”copyright protection3PENANARTDdKbObwf

“Then it's true, you're badly hurt... Oh for Merlin Hermione...” Neville started sobbing.copyright protection3PENANAOKy14WkmPd

“No Neville, I'm not hurt... I just have something, but don't worry it's only temporary, Mrs. Pomfrey told me I'll be out of here in a few days.”copyright protection3PENANAcPcYopuBVn

“Then let me see you Hermione...”copyright protection3PENANARNgu01FPcc

“No, I already said I look horrible.”copyright protection3PENANA41WC20zmno

“You will never be horrible to me, you are my friend, my most precious friend.”copyright protection3PENANAzzdMyBc2d8

“All right, Neville, but don't shout or laugh.”copyright protection3PENANAq4VGyWIeLU

“I won't do any of that.”copyright protection3PENANAqQVmtYn2kK

Hermione drew the curtains and the moonlight illuminated her entire figure, the furry face and cat moustaches had disappeared, as did the cat's nose and feline eyes. Hermione looked completely normal except for a pair of elegant cat ears on her head and a long, silky tail that moved nervously but elegantly at the same time. “copyright protection3PENANAqUkDHSfTUt

“Neville? Neville?”copyright protection3PENANA1kxX16TKkF

Neville dropped the cloak of invisibility and watched Hermione with his eyes and mouth open.copyright protection3PENANAEKvA7Yzu1U

“You are... You are, beautiful Hermione...”copyright protection3PENANAfrOA5vslpn

The girl looked at the surprised boy, wanted to tell him something, but in that moment Mrs. Pomfrey entered the room and saw Neville, well actually only saw someone else's silhouette. Neville hurried to put on the cloak of invisibility and hurried out of the place.copyright protection3PENANAOqIloKshuM

Mrs. Pomfrey was screaming and trying to catch something she didn't see, Neville ran to his common room, then climbed into the bedrooms and put Harry's cloak in place.copyright protection3PENANAX9xtKEsj8t

“Hermione dear, who was that one in the room?”copyright protection3PENANAdoU2Y0xrlX

“I don't know Mrs. Pomfrey, I got up when I felt someone draw the curtains of my bed and asked who it was, it was so dark that I didn't see his face.”copyright protection3PENANAOanxvMiX4M

The following nights, Neville repeated the process, but Mrs. Pomfrey magically secured the infirmary door and the poor boy could no longer enter. And the times Neville had to go to the infirmary because of Ron's and Harry beatings, the nurse made sure that Neville didn't see the girl.copyright protection3PENANALIR9fnVxlZ

“Are you better, Hermione?”copyright protection3PENANAk51gmvXisX

“Yes, I will soon be leaving the infirmary. Hey, Neville, why do you come to the infirmary every time, do you feel sick?”copyright protection3PENANAmTbPerhzfa

“This, no... It's just unimportant stuff, don't worry," said the boy who looked pitiful because of the merciless punches of the ginger and the other boys. Mrs. Pomfrey shook her head.copyright protection3PENANAg0S798u5GP

“What is that smell?”copyright protection3PENANA40V5ghBdA4

“Smell?.... I don't smell any odor” (the boys other than the beating had peed on him). Mrs. Pomfrey put on a face of anger and grief, but she knew not to ask the boy questions, otherwise he would no longer return to the infirmary and would surely resort to extreme and dangerous measures to heal himself.copyright protection3PENANAbXXmMbN4K2

Hermione left the infirmary after a few days and Neville wanted to greet her, but the hateful ones of Ron and Harry took her away and the boy could do nothing. Another couple of days passed and the same frustrating situation continued. In the end, he decided again to wander around aimlessly and found himself in a disused bathroom.copyright protection3PENANA7Ce4Y1gL50

Neville heard someone crying in one of the bathrooms and noticed that he was in one of the girls' bathrooms, he tried to get out but he was caught.copyright protection3PENANAOk2Rsb4IPm

“What are you doing here?”copyright protection3PENANAEjIAIaNpde

Neville turned and saw that a girl's ghost was standing in front of him, she had the most grieving face he had ever seen.copyright protection3PENANAGlQUqOVGA1

“I'm sorry, I was walking aimlessly and came to this place unintentionally.copyright protection3PENANAHolJfNVjvL

The ghost girl introduced herself as Myrtle. Neville's eyes were so red from tears that the ghost did not reprimand him for being in the women's bathroom, although this particular one had been out of use for years.copyright protection3PENANAG94oKNzxcN

The boys exchanged stories and Neville could see that if his situation was very bad, at least he was still alive and could do something to change it, instead for poor Myrtle, it was the end of the road, destined to spend an eternity crying alone in the bathrooms and sliding down the pipes, her case was undoubtedly the epitome of the tragedy.copyright protection3PENANAMS8CNzrJf2

“I'd like to do something for you, Myrtle.”copyright protection3PENANAKXq5HGTC0o

!How gentle you are Neville, unlike others, this morning for example, someone threw a notebook in my bathroom right above my head, I wanted to know who it was, but the idiot had already escaped.”copyright protection3PENANAnGys5jfEQs

“A notebook?”copyright protection3PENANArDlAg89HRo

“Yes, look there it is.”copyright protection3PENANAKBmaH3RAFS

Neville lifted the notebook, it was a black-covered diary, which seemed to be very old, as soon as he grabbed it and felt a sort of strange sensation running down his whole back to the back of his head. Neville said goodbye to Myrtle and carried the diary to his common room.copyright protection3PENANAZ3yywDRMiI

Neville was so obsessed with the blank-page diary that he forgot to look for Hermione, the boy couldn't understand it, there was nothing that could get his attention from that old diary, but it radiated a fascination that Neville couldn't resist.copyright protection3PENANAeJlzkBItjA

One very late evening in the common room, Neville recalled a story that one of his relatives told him about magical books that only revealed his writings if you wrote in them. Determined to test this theory, he wrote hello on the first page of the book, suddenly this word disappeared and was replaced by others coming out of the diary.copyright protection3PENANACycY8xzQ0T

Neville was impressed, for some reason he asked him about the secret chamber and the diary, which belonged to a certain Tom Ryddle, told him that more than fifty years ago, the chamber had already been opened and someone had died, he also told him that the person responsible was arrested and expelled from school and that Tom was awarded with a magnificent trophy.copyright protection3PENANArSWD7bxoh2

“Tom, can you tell me who opened the secret chamber?”copyright protection3PENANAmfwnLzUWte

“I can't tell you... But I can show you.”copyright protection3PENANAp6MC4U9ELa

In that moment a light enveloped Neville and he was transported to one of the corridors of the castle.copyright protection3PENANAxd3tQaFozW

At first Neville was very frightened, but then he realized that he was inside Tom's memories. He could see how a handsome, tall, black-haired boy watched a student who had apparently died being transported, Neville could not see who it was because he was covered with a white sheet, but when he saw one of the arms coming out of it, he assumed it was a girl.copyright protection3PENANArVbYiXxcU1

Tom was rushing into a corridor and opened a door abruptly. The room was dark and could not be seen well but he still distinguished the silhouette of a tall, bulky man.copyright protection3PENANArj8dWc86RU

Tom accused the man of having freed the monster that killed the girl's life, but the other person denied it. Neville understood by the tone of voice, that it was a young boy but of an enormous complexion, in that there were some pushes and a kind of spider the size of a Saint Bernard came out of the place shot.copyright protection3PENANAgo7jSYuxn3

Tom lifted his wand to stop the boy and suddenly the room lit up, the other boy was Hagrid.copyright protection3PENANAtOYFMhDkux

“Hagriiid!” Neville shouted as he was again returned to the common room.copyright protection3PENANAlVQt9NGhTy

Neville couldn't believe that Hagrid was responsible for someone's death, he didn't know whether to tell Hermione or Dumbledore, and as the days went by when these ideas turned around, the day of the final of the quidditch tournament came. Neville did not want to cheer for Harry and went to his common room, after a few minutes everyone in his house came in with worrying faces.copyright protection3PENANAc9WjtPiXnF

“What happened? Neville asked.”copyright protection3PENANA1RuZwgh9AL

“The match was cancelled, two students were attacked, one is a Ravenclaw, Penelope Clearwater and the other is... Hermione.”copyright protection3PENANAGWGxqQl78e
